    I know he plays it with a pick. I'm not sure if he's using any effects at all.
     
  3. I'm not sure either if he's using any effects on that one, but he does use a Boss chorus on "You Could be mine", and probably on "My Michelle" on the "Appetite" album.

    As far as I know he's just using a fender jazz through a Gallien-Kruger Amp. I hear he uses a chorus pedal sometimes to.

    He does not use any effects on that recording, live he does use a chorus pedal.
     
  7. Here's the thing.
    I have the Zoom BFX708 and it has the exact effect he uses. if you e-mail me later i can tell you the components.
